I’m committed to shooting wheelguns for my two remaining major matches this year, which sort of puts me in a world of hurt for .45 ACP ammo. I need at least 500 rounds of practice ammo for next month alone, but at current prices, that puts me in a situation where I’m looking at shooting steel or aluminum cased ammo out of all my guns.
I’ve run some Wolf through my 625 without any issues – all the rounds went off like they should, and I only started to see sticky extraction after about 100 rounds, which was solved with a pass from my bore snake. My concern here is if anyone has ever encountered any issues running high round counts of steel cased ammo through a revolver? I wouldn’t run Wolf in a semi-auto because I’d be worried about beating up the extractor, but it seemslike there’s less possibility for damage running it in a revolver. So, I put the question to all of Gun Nuts Nation (you see what I did there, pdb?) if anyone has experience with lots of steel cased rounds in a 625.
On a side note, I picked up a box of Blazer ammo the other day to try it out, mostly because the aluminum cased ammo scares me a lot less than steel cased stuff. I noticed something when looking at the rounds – the Blazer .45 ACP rounds I have use small pistol primers as opposed to standard .45 ACP rounds which use large pistol. I wonder why they do that?
